Since its origins in the 60s, Sotogrande has incredibly grown. It started with 50 mansions, but now there are about 5000. In all this time, its essence hasn’t changed. The urbanisation is much more than that; it is a sign of luxury without ostentation.
Dream villas, beaches, the sports facilities for the jet set … make of this option a perfect place where you can enjoy peace and privacy. All of this is framed in an unique natural area and an excellent weather to enjoy of calm and privacy. Besides, it has an exclusive leisure offer that has nothing to envy to the popular social life of Marbella.
Though the number of residents is far from the total amount of tourists who temporarily go to Sotogrande, the truth is people are deciding to stay. Nowadays, the sum of habitants rises up to 3.000, among them Spanish and foreigners. It’s a special destination for this last group due to its proximity Gibraltar’s airport. Belgians and French lead the ranking of Europeans who live in the area and that is now already open to the Russian market.
Why is it a wonderful place to settle in?
If you can’t live without practicing sport, the excellence of its five golf links will surprise you. The Real Club Valderrama is the best of Spain and it is even considered the number one in the world. But if we talk about sport, the king is certainly Polo. We won’t find another place in Spain where it is widely practiced. Here, it’s rare not to find English high-class tourism or professional Argentinean players. The International Land Rover Tournament is the most important event of the year.
The charm of its beaches:
The largest beach, which shares the name with the residential area, is next to the mouth of the Guadiaro River. It has a length of 5,450 meters. Its dark sand and fantastic views of the Rock of Gibraltar create a peculiar landscape. Another option is the Torreguadiaro Beach where you can participate in sport and cultural outdoor activities frequently. But if you are looking for a unspoilt place, you should visit El Cabrero o Cala Sardina beaches.
If we have to mention something particular about the zone, it’s the millionaire villas and apartments that we can find along this place. Here you will discover VIP houses with thousands of m2, sea views, heated swimming pools and all kinds of pleasures. So its residents will delight in many comforts as possible. But if you are not thinking about staying for a long time, you’ll find stunning hotels with spacious suites and spas.
A select gastronomy:
As it’splaced by the sea, Sotogrande offers you the opportunity to go to clubs by the beachfront whenever you want. The Cucurucho has always been a usual point for visitors. Now it is called the Beach Club Trocadero and it has two restaurants with an unique decoration. One of them specializes in Mediterranean cuisine and the other one it’s an Asian establishment which only opens in summer. The Octógono and its restaurant Ovo are located next to the beach too. It has an exclusive gourmet proposal and it’s excellent for celebrating events. Torreguadiaro zone is known for Trasmallo de Agustino and Chiringuito de Carrero.
The port area:
In the heart of the Strait of Gibraltar we find an irresistible attraction. It is Sotogrande Marina, which is one of the most beautiful of the Spanish coast. You can take a boat tour through its famous canals and participate in competitions but you can take it easy too and simply enjoy. In addition, it has privileged facilities for naval enjoyment where it is possible to ride a watercraft, practice diving and go to the gym. Besides you can go to the nautical store and it also has fuel pumps. The port has more than 1300 berths between 6 and 70 meters in length.
Forest and sun:
But, what would be about all of these comforts if we couldn’t enjoy them in an exceptional natural environment? The green areas and the wooded landscapes contribute to the relaxation and disconnection of big cities where pollution is very present. The mouth of the Guadiaro is a natural reserve where it is possible to see a large number of birds. Dolphins are frequent at its beaches. The Andalusian weather offers mild winters and a lot of sunny hours per year. Few places can boast about it.
Here runs calm without leaving apart leisure. A place that isn’t only perfect to socialize but also to disconnect.
